Soccer, also known as football in most countries, is a sport in which two teams of eleven players each compete to score goals by kicking a ball into the opposing team's goal. The team that scores the most goals wins the game. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The ball is moved by kicking or passing it to teammates, and players are not allowed to touch the ball with their hands or arms, except for the goalkeeper.
The game is governed by a set of rules called the Laws of the Game, which are established by the International Football Association Board (IFAB). The main objective of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. The team with the most goals at the end of the game wins.
Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world and is played professionally, as well as recreationally, by people of all ages and skill levels. It requires physical fitness, skill, teamwork and strategy to play well. There are various professional leagues and tournaments around the world, including the FIFA World Cup, which is held every four years and is considered the most prestigious international soccer tournament.
